Laminin 521 stabilizes the pluripotency expression pattern of human embryonic stem cells
Here, Dr. Halima Albalushi describes the short-term effects of Biolaminin 521 on the expression of different genes in feeder-cell-derived hES cell lines after being transferred to and cultured on Biolaminin 521.

A switch in Lamb2 to Lamb1 isoforms during aging controls endothelial cell functions and enhances endothelial-to-mesenchymal transition
Here, PhD student Julian Wagner decipher the role of the microenvironment underlying the impairment of endothelial cell functions by aging. Mimicking age-related modulation of laminin β1 versus β2 chain expression changes the functional properties and phenotype of endothelial cells.
